Hi Lukas,

thanks for reaching out. Glad to hear you're still around. Care to briefly elaborate on the "we" in your last sentence? It doesn't look like you're actually referring to members of the expert group. It might be helpful to outline how — going forward — members of the EG and the community can actually help progressing things.

As things currently stand, everyone outside the circle of you and that omnious "we" is doomed to just sit and wait (as we already have for ~1,5 years now). You might be able to get some work of your desk — and thus significantly reduce the pressure — by just letting other interested parties help. Right now, there's just no way to do that.

We are currently evaluating JPA 2.2 MR for Java EE 8. We are very focused on the delivery of Java EE 8 by JavaOne 2017. JPA 2.2 MR scope will need to account for that. I’ll keep you updated about the status as soon as we flush out the details.
